For decades, the Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) has been the preferred instrument for precisely-defined sampling of water velocity across a wide range of environments. The FlowTracker2 ADV utilizes SonTek’s continuing innovation in ADV platforms to offer a laboratory version of the world’s best-selling ADV, the FlowTracker2. For the first time, the ADV’s acoustic probe and processing electronics are housed in one small, lightweight, easily maneuverable unit, and the acoustic head has an optional, integrated pressure (depth) sensor.

Depth data are even correctable for dynamic pressure (Bernoulli) and altitude effects using SonTek’s patent-pending method. Setup of the probe and PC software is simple and mistake-proof. Just connect the cables between the probe and your laboratory PC or laptop, check a few settings, and press the “Start Logging” button. Data are output directly to a .CSV file that is immediately ready for use in the project, model, or database as required.

In three simple steps, the FlowTracker2 ADV delivers robust, high-quality data right out of the box. The software interface writes data directly to a *.CSV file which can then be further processed, analyzed, or imported into other programs according to your project needs.

SNOTEL: A Network For Monitoring Snow

While many of us think of snow men, snow forts, and Currier & Ives prints as our yards turn white in December and January, for Mike Strobel, Director of the National Water and Climate Center at the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, snow isn’t just something to enjoy during the winter months, it’s something to think about all year round. It’s also the foundation of the last fourteen and a half years of his career with the Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting program and using SNOTEL, the Snowpack Telemetry data-gathering network. Strobel’s career began 40 years ago as an Ohio State undergraduate fascinated with climate science.

Engaging People, Engaging Lakes: How The Public Can Help Aquatic Systems

Jo Latimore’s interest in aquatic ecology dates back to her childhood, spending time at her parents’ North Michigan cabin, exploring the water nearby. Today she is a senior academic specialist, aquatic ecologist, and outreach specialist at Michigan State University in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife , in her thirteenth year in the position. Latimore’s primary interests include lake appreciation and engagement.  “Most people appreciate our lakes. They like to look at, fish on, and boat on them. However, they don’t necessarily appreciate our lakes as an ecosystem,” Latimore said. “It’s the health of the lakes that lets us use them recreationally.

Aquatic Systems Connectivity: Finding Relationships Between Waters

An early aquatic science pioneer, Luna Leopold, said that “The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.” Determining how the land impacts water quality, however, is complex. There must be an understanding of the flow of materials, organisms, and energy within our waters and how they are connected, or even whether they are connected. Enter the emerging field of aquatic systems connectivity.
